With his ruggedly handsome, all-American good looks, James Tupper is topping the lists of Hollywood's hottest men in record time. The soft spoken heartbreaker has been declared one of TV Guide's Sexiest Stars and US Weekly's Sexiest TV Men.

Jenny Bicks of "Sex and the City." In his claim-to-fame role, Tupper played Jack, a fish and wildlife biologist who is single, vulnerable and clearly at his best alone in the woods. Most recently, Tupper guest starred opposite Christina Applegate on "Samantha Who?" and co-stars in the film "Me & Orson Wells," starring Zac Efron and Claire Daines. The film gained momentous excitement at both the 2008 Cannes and Toronto Film Festivals.

Additional acting credits include "How I Met Your Mother," "CSI: NY," "Gilmore Girls," "Time of Your Life," and "Dr. Vegas." He starred in the critically-acclaimed independent film "Peroxide Passion," for which he won the Toronto Planet Indie Film Festival's Best Actor Award. He co-conceived and wrote "Loudmouth Soup," a fully improvised film about actors trying to make it in Hollywood, released in 2005. He starred in the Hallmark Channel's original movie "Love's Abiding Joy," written and directed by Michael Landon, Jr. of "Little House on the Prairie" fame.

He also starred in the independent films "For Heaven's Sake," playing the son-in-law of Florence Henderson, and the biopic "Who Flew?" playing legendary novelist Ken Kesey during his time spent writing the award-winning "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" (the directorial debut of Ryan Hurst). Tupper enjoyed a starring role alongside Hollywood elite Sissy Spacek and Alfre Woodard in "Pictures of Hollis Woods" for CBS and the Hallmark Channel.

On top of taking on television and film roles, Tupper continues to pursue his passion for the stage. He has performed in "King Lear" opposite James Gammon and in "The Things We Do For Love" at the Odyssey Theatre in Los Angeles.

Tupper, however, did not always aspire to become an actor. Born and raised North of New England in Nova Scotia, Canada, he describes his hometown as a place with old-fashioned charm. Growing up with four brothers and sisters, he played street hockey and learned carpentry from his father and grandfather. He was devoted to football, and in high school played on the varsity team. After graduating high school, he traveled to London and Africa, finally residing in the foothills of Mount Kenya where he worked on a locally-owned coffee and tea farm.

When Tupper returned home, inspired by his experiences, he started and successfully ran Blue Shoe Theatre Company, which toured Nova Scotia schools presenting plays about fitting in and feeling different. The money he made helped fund his education, first at Concordia University in Montreal and then at Rutgers University in New Jersey where he received a Master of Fine Arts.

After Rutgers, Tupper moved to New York where he was immediately spotted by talent agents and managers. While there, he produced and starred in the off-Broadway play "After the Rain," which won the Moliere Prize in Paris the same year. Tupper has been adding to his list of credentials ever since.

In his spare time, Tupper enjoys relaxing in his Los Angeles home with his beloved Great Dane, Harold, whom he named after his grandfather. He worked as a carpenter between acting jobs for 15 years, and still enjoys building things for his friends, as well as bird watching, jogging and playing the guitar.
